In The Dukes Of Windsor - Minus 9. Snowlights Refuse Off The Radar We Defect. Download Album:. Purchase CD :. Aptly named it seems, as the lads had to withstand below-zero temperatures of the Nordic winter to work in the Tonteknik Studios, a reformed lunatic asylum no less. With this second effort the Dukes of Windsor are out to forge a name for themselves, as it was the handy work of TV Rock's remix of their track The Others two years earlier that earned them overnight recognition.
So the question now is : was it worth the wait? Opener to the album No Disguise is haunting in both its lyrical imagery of destitution and desolation and high-pitched vocal histrionics. Weaving employs his earlier operatic training to dramatically deliver verse and chorus to the listener.
The edgy disco feel is a favourable mix of dancey drumbeats and simplistic guitar riffs. Aside from the funk heavy bass, I found it to be rather bland both musically and vocally. It's an under-the-radar track that is far too commercial for my liking. This one is eerily reminiscent of George Orwell'sof "a boot stomping on a human face — forever".
The military-like march is juxtaposed with Weaver's confronting lyrics and monotonous verses. It seems like the Dukes are building up to what could possibly be a powerful album. Sadly, it's the contrary - as this is where "Minus" reaches its full potential. Land of Strangers and Snowlights are more down-tempo Dukes Of Windsor - Minus , diverging from the Dukes' characteristic incessant beats that punctuate the record with Khorakhanè (Voce Luvi De André) - Fabrizio De André - Dal Vivo Anime Salve guitar effects and wispy words.
Crystals Getting High is three minutes and twenty-four seconds of fluff obviously intended to fill out Dukes Of Windsor - Minus album. It reminds me of something you would be likely to find on a soundtrack for The OC. Weaving's voice is both his strength and his downfall it seems, as its distinctive urgency leaves a repetitive feel to Dukes Of Windsor - Minus record.
